Born and raised in Hilo, I spent most of my time fishing, playing ukulele, and playing soccer. After graduating from the University of Hawaii at Hilo with a B.A. in Japanese Studies and a B.A. in Linguistics, I went to Tokyo Gakugei University to further my education.
At graduate school, I did research on the history, language, and culture of Japanese immigrants in Hawaii. By doing so, I gained a lot of knowledge which gave me a deeper understanding of our unique local culture. After getting my M.Ed. (Master of Education degree), I had short stints at an IT company and an English conversation school. Next, I worked for 4 years as an assistant professor teaching English, Japanese, and Linguistics at a 4-year liberal arts university in Tokyo.
After almost ten years in Japan, I felt it was time for me to come back home and make a contribution to the community that has shown so much aloha to me over the years. I am back in the soccer community as an assistant coach for the University of Hawaii at Hilo Men’s Soccer Team.
While growing up in Hawaii, I was always taught to treat others with compassion and lend a helping hand, and living in Japan instilled in me resilience and leadership. As your real estate agent, these values are the foundation of how I will strive to satisfy your needs.
"Clark Realty agents have one primary goal: to provide exceptional service with professionalism, integrity and aloha. Each agent has access to the best available tools to help buyers find the property that suits their needs and to help sellers successfully market their properties both locally and globally. Your Clark Realty agent is also supported by a managing broker in their local office and an on-island management team with decades of real estate experience."
Finding the right location is just as important as finding the right home, and no one knows the local area better than a local agent. Allow me to help you find the perfect community for you, your family, and your lifestyle.
